Every year as we learned about and celebrated his birth in my first grade classroom, I would read my students my favorite MLK, Jr. book of all time: Martin's Big Words. And every year I couldn't stop the tears from flowing. Written with beautiful simplicity, it shares the journey, plight, and power of Dr. King's words in a way that young minds can absorb and understand. Since I don't have a group of littles to share this book with this year, I wanted to share it with you through two of my favorite quotes featured in the book; quotes that are as applicable today as they were when he spoke them decades ago.
Happy MLK, Jr. Day, friends.
